Hello everyone, my DA content is to study the game of animal crossing. From the original version to the latest version. According to wikipedia, since its initial release in 2001, six Animal Crossing games have been released worldwide, one each for the Nintendo 64/iQue Player, Nintendo DS, Wii, Nintendo 3DS ios, and Nintendo Switch.
This game is released by Nintendo. In the game, players live on an uninhabited island inhabited by anthropomorphic animals and carry out activities.This game is known for its openness, and extensively uses the built-in clock and calendar of the game console to simulate real time.
In other words, you can set a character that is the same as yourself to communicate and play with the animals in this game. If you want to adjust the time, for example, if you want to see what it will look like ten years later, this is perfectly possible.
The game of animal crossing also extends to cartoons and surrounding products. For example, in 2006, the film version of Animal Crossing was released in Japan. Some time ago, the Nintendo flagship store in Japan sold products related to Animal Crossing.
My project plan is… I will record what I have researched in the blog every 2-3 weeks according to my progress. I also use reddit to update the screenshots of the game to make sure I play the game every week.
My audience is everyone, because this game is regardless of age. Because I see from social media that there are children playing, young people playing, and older people playing this game.
My research is how people are crazy about Animal crossing. I will extract search indexes in different periods from some data websites to match people’s enthusiasm for Animal Crossing. Analyze why people are keen to play this game, Such as Turnip Price, DIY clothing and DIY music, such as the difference in game features in different area, has triggered an online boom. For example, this game will differentiate seasons according to real-world time, Different seasons and areas will have different game features, such as cherry blossoms in the northern hemisphere and snow in the southern hemisphere. Fish species refresh in different season. For example, sharks will only appear in a limited number of months of the year.
